What wonderful pics. Our British towns must be looking wonderful if they are taking part in Britain in Bloom. Makes we want to jump on a plane and come and see it.

The town does look lovely Chris. There are more and different displays around the town which I want to try and get to photo. These ones were handy to do as they are right beside the outdoor market where I work. The council always put on a good display, some would say they wished the council would put as much effort into other aspects of the town! The judging has been done, tomorrow I should find out where Oswestry came.

Do you live near Oswestry? When we were looking for our new home we stayed there in a hotel on the main street - loved the town and Shropshire too - but decided on Somerset in the end. Hope Oswestry did well in the competition!

Yes Spritz, I am only 12 miles from Oswestry. I guess that hotel would have been The Wynnstay? It is a lovely town, still a typical market town with character and individual shops. Sadly, a retail park on the cards :( , but being contested.

You're right! It was! Any news on the competition yet?

Was told today that the results are not announced until September.
I had intended to get more photo's of the town today, but forgot, in the rush to get out this morning, to take my camera with me!
